There is much invested in downtown Springville


After reading the letter sent to the Journal, which stated there has been no investment in downtown Springville in decades, I was shocked, to say the least.

My first thought was to list all the business and building owners who have invested so much of their money and lives in downtown, but thought how silly and unnecessary; everyone can see this is untrue, even driving by or visiting the local shops.

The writer of that letter was irresponsible and owes an apology [I wonít hold my breath].

Some like to throw words out there and criticize, but when you make the effort to buy a building, renovate it using your own money or just open a business, taking that chance, make it or not, thatís what American spirit is about and thatís when I listen; otherwise itís background noise. I love this village and I am proud to call it home. Itís time for all to work together and stop the nonsense.

While I like and respect all the candidates running, I am putting my support behind the mayor Bill Krebs, honest, period, 100 percent above-board and puts untold hours into running a village he loves. Terry Skelton, a great trustee who is a community-minded man and has given so much of his life to Springville Youth Inc. and Bob Laskowski, new to the trustee board, but his experience as board president of the Childrenís League and concern for Springville make him a good choice. Weíre headed in the right direction and thereís more to be done, so get out and vote, folks, March 18.
